If you have been doing the routine yum updates then it 'should' be up to
date.

To check it run "rpm -qa xorg-x11-serv\* "  and it will tell you what
versions all the x11 servers are.  Mine are
        $ rpm -qa xorg-x11-serv\*
        xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.fc5.5
        xorg-x11-server-utils-1.0.1-1.2
        xorg-x11-server-Xvfb-1.0.1-9.fc5.5
        xorg-x11-server-sdk-1.0.1-9.fc5.5
        xorg-x11-server-Xnest-1.0.1-9.fc5.5
